Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre will be joined by a full band that includes longtime Tull bandmates Dee Palmer and Clive Bunker for a night of classic Jethro Tull – “Aqualung,” “Bungle in the Jungle,” “Locomotive Breath,” “Cross Eyed Mary” and more!

In 1969, a band of four English musicians arrived in New York and literally took America by  storm. Over the next 50 years, this legendary band accumulated over 65 million record sales and  a following of loyal fans that are the envy of rock bands worldwide! This band was Jethro Tull. At the center of Tull’s unique sound is guitarist Martin Barre, renowned for his formidable  mastery of historic rifts, power chords and soaring melodic solos. Martin is celebrating the history of Jethro Tull, with a ‘Tour of Tours’. He will be bringing a  spectacular show with his touring band, featuring Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on  keyboard, Darby Todd on Drums, with Becca Langsford and Alex Hart on vocals.
